. he's touring the country, speaking at venues like san francisco's cathedral hill hotel, spreading the word that chocolate goes great with beer, not wine.yeah, everybody says red wine and chocolate. but when you sit down and actually do it, it doesn't work the vast, vast majority of the time. beer is something pete knows a thing or two about. you see, he's "pete" of "pete's wicked ale" fame. he used to run one of the most successful microbrews in the country.i find that pairing chocolates with beer is actually much easier. but don't think pete's just trying to sell more beer. he's not. pete got out of the beer biz years ago. now he's running a gourmet chocolate company called "cocoa pete's."the best way to enjoy it is to take a little bite -- not a big one -- but a little bite of the chocolate, let it melt on the tongue and as it liquefies try a sip of the beer. pete leads tastings to introduce folks to his chocolates -- and to debunk the old myth that they're best paired with red wine.that was a surprise! you know, i'd think that wine would definitely pair pretty well with c
